While searching for another song in the DT, I came across this:

@displaysong.cfm?SongID=9749

What is it?

If you take the notes given in the @displaysong.cfm?SongID=9749 file, assume a meter of 4/4 (probably the same result with 2/4), assume the key of C or the key of F (F seems more likely), add some headers and bar lines, and treat it as abc notation, you get a tune

BE/E/ E/F/G/A/
BB B2 |
cF F/G/A/B/
cc cA/B/ |

AF Fz2 |

that does not seem to fit the words given in the "THE HOBNAIL BOOTS THAT FATHER WORE" thread that John MacKenzie linked, at least not the verses. However, what I assume is the chorus (I don't know the song):

Now me and me brother from the age of four
Up to eleven, could sleep and snore
So nice and cosy in a box of straw
In the hobnailed boots that me father wore

could possibly be shoehorned to fit the tune.

Thanks for pointing that out, Mr. Happy. I reported it to the DT Attribution and Minor Corrections PermaThread.
